Pumpkin Spice & White Chocolate Cheesecake + Two Variations

Pumpkin Spice & White Chocolate Cheesecake + Two Variations
You’ve heard the saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Well, it was definitely the impetus for this Thanksgiving dessert, as I was torn between pleasing my stepdad, Mike, who loves White Chocolate Cheesecake and my daughter’s boyfriend, Chris, who expressed a desire for Peanut Butter Cheesecake (which I considered but then swapped for pumpkin in honor of the holiday.) The combination of the two flavors was even better than I expected, with the white chocolate lending the pumpkin a good measure of sophistication. The only aspect of this dessert that gave me pause was marbling the two cheesecake batters. I have had mixed results with various marbling techniques I’ve tried in the past. This time, I poured large dollops of alternating batters, side-by-side, in one layer and again in a second layer. Pumpkin Spice & White Chocolate Cheesecake Pumpkin and white chocolate are an unexpected and completely harmonious flavor pairing. Base ¼ cup fine, dry, chocolate cookie crumbs Serves 8-12.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies. Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ’em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them. They’re nothing special to me, unless you get some cookie dough-action before it meets its fate in the oven. Now you’re talkin’. I’d much rather drown my sorrows in a bowl of cookie dough than nibble a dozen “cookies” dipped in milk. Pear Spice Cake with Walnut Praline Topping Kid Table.
